Mary Louise Glen

Mary Louise Glen, Toledo, OH, passed away on January 6, 2015. She was 84. Born in Detroit, MI, on May 15, 1930, Mary Louise graduated from Cass Technical High School and then Wayne State University. She proceeded to devote her professional life to education, first teaching reading to elementary school students and later spending four decades as a professor at the University of Toledo. There she pioneered in the teaching of courses on women's roles in American life and marriage and the family. She also traveled the world: Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska. And she never lacked for opinions, often for good reason. She is survived by her sons John M. Glen, Indianapolis, IN; Paul M. Glen, Aiea, HI; David H. Glen, Weston, MA; her nephew, nieces, and grandchildren; and her many friends. All of them have recognized her strong advocacy for women's independence, and they intend to carry that forward.
